The Glengarry News - - News -

One tra­di­tion ends and an­other cus­tom con­tin­ues. After or­ga­niz­ing the Alexan­dria Santa Claus for about 25 years, Le Club Riche­lieu will not stage the event this year. How­ever, the pop­u­lar pro­ces­sion will re­turn un­der the aus­pices of the Alexan­dria and Dis­trict Lions Club. Cassie Depratto-Nutt, who heads the July 1 pa­rade com­mit­tee, has taken on the lead­er­ship of the Christ­mas pa­rade com­mit­tee. The pa­rade is set for Sun­day, De­cem­ber 2 at 6 p.m. “Hats off to the Riche­lieu for do­ing this for some many years,” says Mrs. Depratto-Nutt. The Lions took over after Le Club Riche­lieu con­cluded it no longer had suf­fi­cient vol­un­teers to present the pa­rade. For more in­for­ma­tion, call Cassie Depratto-Nutt at 613-525-3208.
